  • Notes 
    • Rev. Henry S. Hallman, "was born August 5th, 1859, in Wilmot Township, Waterloo County, Ontario. He attended the New Dundee public school until old enough to give an assisting hand on the farm. When well up in his "teens" he left the farm and worked with the carpenters and builders. Realizing the necessity of a better education, he entered the Berlin High School and other places of education until he passed his examination for the teaching profession. After teaching two and one-half years in Bruce County he retired from the profession and moved to Berlin where he still resides. When quite a young man he was converted unto the Lord and soon thereafter he joined with the River Brethren denomination, of which body he was a member for some years. In 1879 he united with the Mennonite Brethren in Christ denomination of which body he is an active member. In 1881 he gave his life to the ministry for the last named body and has served the church of his choice faithfully up to the present. In October, 1888, the general conference held in Berlin, Ontario, had him appointed editor of the Gospel Banner, a position he still holds. He is united in wedlock with Maria Rosenberger and has a family of five children".1a

      Hallman, H. S. (1859-1932)

      H. S. Hallman (5 August 1859-13 October 1932) was a United Missionary Church (now Evangelical Missionary Church of Canada) minister and editor. Hallman was born near Kitchener, ON. On 18 February 1881, he married Maria Rosenberger, and to their union nine children were born. Converted at the age of 14, he entered the ministry in 1881, and was ordained in 1885 by the Ontario Conference of the United Missionary Church. He held pastorates at Port Elgin and Elmwood, ON.

      Elected editor of the Gospel Banner in 1888, Hallman served in this capacity for 20 years, and also as publisher from 1899 to 1908. Under his leadership the paper became a weekly publication in 1893. He also published several tracts, books, hymnbooks, and periodicals, and became the founder and first publisher of the Scripture Text Calendar which he continued to edit until his death in 1932.
      Hallman was secretary-treasurer of the Ontario Conference Mission Board 1898-1910, and president 1910-17. He was the first president of the Ontario Conference city mission work. He was secretary of the Ontario conference for 15 years and also secretary of five general conferences of the denomination (1888-1904 inclusive).

      In the latter part of his life Hallman became active in the Christian and Missionary Alliance (CMA), although still retaining his membership in the United Missionary Church. For several years he was superintendent of the CMA publishing business in New York City, later serving as pastor of Alliance churches in Brantford and Toronto, ON. He died in Toronto on 13 October 1932.2a
